Film shot in Barcelona (Umbracle) posed multiple crossings of identity in their references to the natural world. Taking as starting point The Jungle Book film filmed in 1942 by the Korda brothers, and serving me of the OST composed by Miklos Rozsa and later Elmar Gunsch tale. A new reading of the jungle It is built from a geographical location that does not have it as part of its native biodiversity, but which itself is plagued by these plants that mostly are used as decoration of homes, a new contemporary reference at territorial level. Multiple identities speak of a geographical location that is not theirs, creating a narrative from stereotypes that transports you to another place by scenographic fiction.
